LOS ANGELES (AP) -John Wooden is recovering from pneumonia, and the 98-year-old basketball great is expected to be released from the hospital soon.
UCLA, the school Wooden coached to 10 national titles, said Friday he was admitted to a Los Angeles-area hospital Feb. 13 and is completing his recovery.
``My father is doing well,'' said Nan Muehlhausen, Wooden's daughter. ``His lungs are clear and he has been eating well. We expect him to be released soon.''
His family requested that well-wishers not call or visit so he can get rest.
Wooden, who retired 34 years ago, spent time in the hospital a year ago after breaking his left wrist and collarbone in a fall at his suburban condo.
